Nobody can out-manipulate Thief!
- A desert
|Red Mage||Hey, guys. Guess you didn't hear my cries of help. Or the gentle sobs. But it's cool, I'm back.|
|Fighter||You told me Red Mage was dead.|
|Black Mage||Oh, we've all been dead. His return is no surprise, really.|
|Fighter||But you said he'd turn into the walking dead any minute and we had to make haste so he couldn't feast upon our delicious living flesh.|
|Black Mage||Look, I say a lot of things.|
|Black Mage||Now, we can stand here and argue about who fed who obvious, completely incongruous fabrications and lies.|
But are you prepared to risk the unrelenting hunger of the undead?
|Fighter||All this senseless talking about a subject no one can remember much less, uh, remember is getting us nowhere, and zombies are hot on our heels.|
We must move forward and onward!
|Black Mage||And forward.|
|Fighter||But in an onward manner, of course!|
|Thief||Watching you manipulate him must be what it's like for everyone else to watch me talk to people.|
|Black Mage||How so?|
|Red Mage||Totally back.|
|Thief||Gimme and a dollar and I'll tell you.|
|Thief passes by...|
|Both Red Mage and Black Mage look at Thief...|
|Black Mage||Why did I do that?|
